problem1)a) For the purpose of conducting a test of difference of two means, describethe levels of measurement for the variousvariables that are involved.

b) A retailer which sells home entertainment systems accumulated 10451 sales invoices during the previous year. The total of the sales amount on these invoices as claimed by the company is Rs. 63,84,675. In order to estimate the true total sales for last year, an independent auditor randomly selects 350 of the invoices and determines the actual sales amounts by contacting the purchasers. The mean and standard deviation of the 350 samples sales amounts are Rs.532 and standard deviation 168. Find the point and interval estimate given that a 95% confidence is required. Do you think that the amount of invoices claimed by the accounts department is correct?

problem2) FedEx and UPS are the world’s two leading cargo carriers by volume and revenue. According to the Airports Council International, the Memphis International Airport (FedEx) and Louisville International airport (UPS) are two of the ten largest cargo airports in the world. A sample of cargo handled in the two airport were recorded and based on the same can we conclude that there is a difference in the cargo handled by the two airports.

Memphis    9.1    15.1    8.8    10    7.5    10.5    8.3    9.1    6    5.8    12.1    9.3

Louisville     4.7    5.0     4.2    3.3    5.5     2.2    4.1    2.6    3.4    7.0    6.3    5.8

Use 5% level of significance to verify the above problem.


Mr. LePew, the advertising manager of a medium sized manufacturer of rug and room deodorizers, has developed three preliminary advertising campaigns for the company’s line of deodorizers. The three campaigns are tested in an independent sample of 24 cities across the US and the sales in each city are monitoried.( note: cities are randomly assigned to each campaign and cities are comparable in terms of various socioeconomic and demographic variables)

                  Sales in the cities
